COME years ago, in the course of theA. 
& M. events, the students decided to 
get out an annual which was to present a 
complete picture of college life as it is on 
our campus. Suffice it to say, we have 
endeavored to keep up the practice- --cer- 
tainly a wise one---and consequently ' 'The 
Reveille,' 1910, is before you. To those, 
both off and on the staff, who have assist- 
ed in any way the publication of this book 
we extend the heartiest thanks, and finally, 
to the reader, we would say that if you 
who read these pages shall gather there- 
from anything of the inspiration that has 
been ours, or if in any measure however 
small this book emanates the spirit of our 
college, then the effort here expended shall 
have been made to good purpose.

•JOHN CRIMPTON HARDY, M. A.. LI.. D. 



John Crumpton Hardy, M. A., LL. D. 



"Can storied urn or animated bust 

Back to its mansion call the fleeting breath? 
Can Honor's voice provoke the silent dust. 
Or flattery soothe the dull, cold ear of Death: 



Realizing thai flowers placed on the casket have no power to waft their 
fragrance over the days that are gone, to brighten the sleeper's past, cheer his 
disembodied spirit, and make after-life brighter and happier, we, bouyant with 
youth and hope, have decided to break our alabaster box of love and esteem 
at the feet of one who is worthy of all the honor we may pay him. at a time 
when he is still living, and while his heart can be thrilled by our admiration. 

Nearly two-score years ago was created the first school of industrial education 
in Mississippi. At that time our State was just beginning to recover from a 
war of desolation, followed by a reign of despotism that is unparalleled hi 
American history. I>ut the Mississippi Legislature caught a vision of greater 
things in store for our dear old State, through industrial advancement, and 
established the Mississippi Agricultural and Mechanical College at Starkville. 
A few of our people misunderstood its mission, and the fires of opposition 
burned with increasing intensity. One prominent politician boasted that he 
would tear down the college and give the bricks to farmers to use in making 
chimneys. To guard against such fanaticism, the immortal Senator George 
placed a provision in the organic law of our commonwealth, the Constitution of 
1890, making it incumbent upon the legislature to provide for the maintenance 
and support of the Agricultural and Mechanical College. Since that time the 
hand of Fate has dealt kindly with this institution, and it has waxed strong 
and mighty. It seems fitting to us, then, that this volume of The Reveille should 
be dedicated to a man under whose guidance the institution has made the 
greatest strides. 

In 1900, when President Hardy was placed in charge of this institution, its 
total valuation was only $300,000. Last December a board of appraisers, com- 
posed of legislators, estimated the property al more than $1,000, 000. Our 
enrollment has grown from 300 to more than 1,000. The esteem in which this 
College is held by our sister institutions and by educational authorities is 
another gratifying result of A. & M. expansion. The Tinted States Commis- 

10 



sioner of Agriculture, Dr. Knapp, places the Mississippi A. & M. in the forefront 
of Southern industrial schools. President Taft, on his recent trip through 
the South, took occasion to commend the work done at this College. To say 
that these things are the result of chance, or of natural growth, is hardly to 
give credit to whom credit is due. Nothing great or good was ever accomplished 
without unremitting, self-sacrificing toil. Certainly, then, we must owe some- 
thing of our present standing in the educational world to the ceaseless efforts of 
our President, With a broader vision than ever before, he is now working to 
make the influence of our College felt in every corner of our beloved State. Pie 
will never be content until the curse of ignorance, which is blighting our 
country, is lifted, and until Mississippi assumes that place in the agricultural 
life of the nation which Nature intended she should occupy — the Garden Spot 
of America. 

Yes, the A. & M. glories in her past — her Lees, her Stones, her Montgomeries 
and her Georges — and with hopeful, expectant eye she turns to the future. 
She stands today on the threshold of a wider existence. In the voiceless suppli- 
cation of a mother's love she beseeches you, her sons, to forget not your duty. 
Before her stretches a vista of growth, and progress, and usefulness, such as will 
lead to a realization of her fondest desires. Feeble as is our vision of the future, 
yet strengthened by the fire of love, we have caught a glimpse of what is in 
store for our Alma Mater. We believe in her future as we honor and respect 
her past. Hoping that in these pages each reader may find cause for a greater 
reverence for the A. & M. of long ago, and a greater ambition for the A. & M. 
of the future, we dedicate this volume to the man whom we believe will change 
these intangible dreams into living, breathing actualities.

Editor-in-Chief The 'JO Reveille.

Our First President. 






GENERAL STEPHEN 1). LEI-]. LL.l).. 

President Mississippi Agricultural nml Mechanical Colleye, April 1. 

1880, to Maij 1, 1899. 

"The bravest are the tenderest, 
Tlic loving aii' the daring." 

As ;i soldier, the author of this brief sketch served under the late 
Lieutenant-Genera] Stephen 1). Lee the last year of the Civil War, 
and as a member of his faculty and as his next-door neighbor was 
intimately associated with him for sixteen years. 

In war and in peace, our first President was found, in every crisis 
of life, a great man — great in nobility of character thai faces duty, 
that rights in the open with hard blows, that is magnanimous to a 
defeated foe, that holds no vengeful malice against the foe who is 
successful. 

There is no finer model after which the young men of Mississippi 
can fashion their lives; for he was a great leader, a stanch friend, a 
just enemy, a generous neighbor, a loving father, a tender husband — 
a noble gentleman. 

William Howard Magruder.

ALVIN CARL ADAMS, 

Union, Miss. 

Industrial Education. 

I'ri rate. 

Born twenty-four years ago at Java, Neshoba county. Finding 
that the universe did not pause in its career, he grew older. 
Alvin first entered our College in November, 1005, and should 
have graduated with the class of 1009. Unfortunately, circum- 
stances were such that he could not return at the beginning 
of Ins Junior year. In the fall of 1008 he again returned to 
school, entering our class, and has been a loyal, enthusiastic 
and popular member ever since. One of the hardest working 
men in our class, and one (hat will make his mark some day. 
It is the wish of the writer that the world may soon recognize 
Adams' sterling qualities of honest worth that have endeared 
Mm to us, and that "nothing may be too good for him." 

Alvin was treasure]- for the Dialectic Literary Society, first 
term '07-'l)S; member of the Magruder Debating Society, and 
A y & M. College Teachers' club. 

"An honest man's the noblest work' of God." 





ELBERT MARTIN ALDERMAN, 

Brookhaven, Miss. 

Agriculture. 
Captain Company I. 

E. -M., belter known to the boys as "Red," came to us 
from Lincoln county. This man was a "Prep," therefore 
feels like a veteran among us. "Red" is a reserved and model 
young man. To a stranger he may seem to be a quiet, sedate 
sort of a fellow, but his sterling worth has won for him 
many Mends among the faculty ami students. He loves the 
girls, but has not yet become entangled in the well of Cupid, 
tor he believes that a man tan be married many times and 
a bachelor but once. lie has made a good Captain, and the 
"Preps" are proud of him. 

V. M. C. A.; Agricultural Club, Normal Club and Educa- 
tional Club. 

"A proper man as any one shall see in a summer's day."

HAL ANDERSON, 



Tupelo, Miss. 

Industrial Education. 

Second Lieutenant Company I. 

This is "Hal," just ■•Hal"— llw I is nil. lie never was 
known to be called anything else. The brevity of his name 
doesn't indicate anything, for lie is one of our long, lanky 
hn. (h,as. and leads his class— when taken in alphabetical order. 
We haven't time to go into his military record. He expects 

to In. a teacher. Works in a postoffic 'casionally, si, he 

will be prepared to serve as postmaster-general when "Lottie" 
Cothern gets to be president. 

Treasurer Philotechnie Literary Society, third term 'nS-'()9; 
V. M. C. A.; Teachers' Club; Reflector Shall'; Sabre Company; 
K. K. K.; class baseball; vice-president Tennis Club. 

"Stuffed with all honorable virtues." 



M.IIKKT (iUAI)Y ATKINSON. 

Houston, Miss. 

Electrical Engineering. 
First Lieutenant Company E. 

"At" became a member of our class in our Sophomore year, 
and he claims that he hailed from God's country. He is 
anxious in get his "dip" so that he can inter into the en- 
gineering branches of the government service. lie is a ladies' 
man, no doubt; has a girl, anyway — but this side of his nature 
has not been allowed to dominate since he entered college. 
He stands high in all his classroom work, which is a sure 
sign of his future success, but is no bookworm, and is we,! 
liked by his classmates. 

lie was parliamentarian for Hie M. A. S. E.. first term '09-'10; 
member of the Sabre Company, Khi Klux Khan, and president 
of the Chickasaw County Club, '09-'10. 

"Though learned, well-bred; and though well-bred, sincere."

JOSEPH HENRY BARRIER, 

Yazoo City, Miss. 

Civil and Mining Engineering. 
Private. 

"Nuts" hails from quaint old Yazoo City. He joined our 
band in the session of '07-'OS, and soon became a leader in all 
the wild pranks that are proverbially characteristic of the 
Sophomores. In "Nuts" we have found an optimistic, kind- 
hearted buy who makes friends as easily as he "swipes" squir- 
rels. He heartily approves (?) of all military rules and is 
so enamored of the life that lie intends to try for West Point 
Military Academy. Has always taken a considerable interest 
in athletics, and would have rushed some one for the big 
team, but was handicapped by being too light. Also has 
been interested in the fair sex up-town. Favorite habit, 
strolling over his past and future with "Dick" and "Stank." 

George Rifles, sergeant '08-'09, second lieutenant 'O'j-'IO;

CARL BELTON BETHEA, 

Sumrall, Miss. 

Electrical hJiiginccriiu/. 

Lieutenant-Colonel ( 'om dkiihHiiii Regiment. 

Observe the evolution of a "Prep." Who of the class of 
1905 could have suspected that the poor "Prep" labeled 
"Bethea, G. B.," would finally rise to such a dizzy height as 
he now holds and hud it over their fair domains'? Yet such 
is fate. o Colonel! how many Seniors hast thou caused to 
listen to the mournful notes of "Same, not marching to 
breakfast"? O Editor-in-Chief! how many times hast thou 
"jacked up" thy Reflector staff with divers strong language? 
O ye Filipinos! watch out, for he hath a third lieutenant's 
commission in the United States Constabulary of thy benighted 
country.

DE WITT BILLINGSLEY, 

Winona, Hiss. 

Electrical Engineering. 

Captain of Commissary. 

The subject of this sketch was first ushered into existence 
at the small (own of Lodi (pronounced "Low-dee"), in Mont- 
gomery county, on April 13th, 1890. We think their must 
have been an earthquake on that day, caused by his first 
violent attempts to drop-kick this old terrestrial hall over 
the sun. Whether lie began that early or not. it is certain 
that lie has since developed into an excellent football player, 
being one of the swiftest and headiest little quarter-backs in 
the South. He finished at the Winona High School in 1907 
and joined us as a Sophomore, and has a good record as 
student, in spite of the attractions of football and the girls.

WILLIAM HENRY BOWMAN, JR., 

Pickens, Miss. 

Mechanical Engineering. 
Major First Battalion. 

The Major says that his first claim to greatness is that he 

was burn at Pickens. For sixteen years he drew" out there his 
bucolic existence until, sad to relate, he heard the "spieling" 
of Professor Critz, and there awoke within him the ambition 
to go and do likewisi — with what success, judge by the lienors 
that have been showered upon him. The way he played on 
his class team during the championship game is a matter 
of history. Social success has been his also.

Earl, better known to the professors as Mr. Bra-sier, is another 
one of the Chirk county products. He is a true sport, and 
spends his leisure hours curling his hair and entertaining the 
"skirts." He is a noted orator, and has made many high- 
flown speeches, for which he received distinguished honors. 
The goal of his ambition is to retire to some Hesperidian 
nook, in company with the object of his adoration, and 
there to pursue, in ineffable bliss, the bright and shining 
paths of scientific agriculture. He is a military genius (?).

This blithe and debonair youth was thrust upon the unsus- 
pecting residents of our capital city on the morning of 
February 17th. 1889, but, fearing that something would happen 
to their little jewel, he was sent to Wren, Miss., for safe- 
keeping. Here he increased in knowledge and stature until 
September 15th. luilll. when lie entered the A. & M. College. 
He came here with the intention of winning every honor 
that was dangled before him. How well lie has succeeded 
can lie judged fnun a glance at his "attainments," given at 
the end of this article. His hobby is using "sesquipedalian 
verbiage." He once electrified the Literary Society by exclaim- 
ing that his opponent's arguments were "prolix and obviously 
unsound, ami not within the premises of the syllogism." We 
wish that space was available to go into his "heart-smashing" 
record — which is, indeed, an enviable one. Despite all this, 
he has managed to be one of the leaders of his class from 
Freshman year, through Senior, and his popularity with his 
classmates is attested by the number of high offices that 
in him. His brilliant wit and scholarly 
hleilly gain positions for him thai will

since which time his chief place of rest lias been the laboratory, 
where he peacefully whiles away the day breaking beakers

and lie and Brashier often make amusing comments on each 
other's locks. In fact, Brashier declares that no man was ever 
so much deceived by another as Dave is by himself (in regard 
to his looks). 

Dave is a bright fellow, one whom we all like, lie is very 
studious and is never seen, as is (he case with too many of us, 

idling away the time. This will be better shown, perhaps. 

in the fad that he lias completed his course in three years, 
a thing that a goodly number of us have trouble in doing in 
four. He is always optimistic, never lias the blues, and during 

his Slav' with us he has never I n heard to utter a word of 

discredit against any one.

"Peter the Dane" originated down about the coast and 
walked out beneath the scorching sun on April 20, 1891. The 
only companions of his early life were mullets and alligators, 
of which he was very fond. One day while sitting on his native 
river bank he saw the tip of an alligator's snout just above 
the water and by observing it closely calculated the whole 
alligator's weight within one-seven-hundredths of an ounce. 
This decided his future, for nunc but "Buz" could be the teacher 
of one with such a mathematical mind, so he entered A. and M. 
in 1905 and lias made rapid strides in mathematics ever since.

of the Athletic Council for two years. In 1909 he was also 
assistant manager of the 'Varsity football team. The "Irish- 
man's" other and varied activities, as well as his universal 
popularity, are well indicated by the following- list of clubs: 

Swamp Rabbits, German, of which he was president '09-'10; 
Elyssian, Prowlers, Collegian, Octopus, Owls, Junior, Rabbit 
Hunters, Holmes County, Sabre Company.

This modest youth first drew breath in the ozone laden atmos- 
ihere of Green county. lie is a very obstinate arguer when 
roused, and would not believe an angel on oath if it was 
ontrary to his way of thinking. We know him, though, to be 

whole-souled, good-hearted fellow, who would do everything 
ii the world for a classmate or friend.

then he lias alternately gone to sel 1 and run the home plan-

twelve years, so we consider him a full fledged Southerner. His 
proseni home is Laurel, Miss. Hi- first incentive to become an 
electrical engineer was gained while working in a power plant 
of the Gulf Stalin Investment Company at Laurel, where he 
worked for three years and gained a practical knowledge which 
has served him well here. Since calling to A. and M. he lias 
taken an active part in athletics, having been our 'Varsity first 
baseman for three years. He is one of the best firsl basemen

with it has come our last year at A. & M. Strenuous 
years these four have been, but the reward is not 
Call off; long and tiresome has been the race, but the 
goal is ;it last in sight, and the much coveted and once 
far off "sheepskin" is almost within our grasp. What 
on i- several diplomas will signify depends upon the 
individual to a ureal extent. Shall we go away feel- 
ing that they are worth to us only their intrinsic 
value, or that we have not come about them honestly? 
No! (and I am sure fully half a hundred would an- 
swer the same). All that are now in the Senior Class 
feel that their diplomas will lie worth infinitely more 
to them than its mere money value. Far better than 
this, they will know that what they shall Ljet will lie 
the reward of honest toil. We have no intellectual 
giants in our class, no gifted writers or horn poets, 
far fewer are our scientists or mathematicians. What 
we have learned has cost, in many cases, consider- 
able effort and much hard study. It has been worth 
the effort, and we now have the satisfaction of looking 
back over our records and knowing that in them is 
the fruit of no little study. 

September, 1906 saw the beginning of our career- 
that is, the most of the class ; some of us started earlier. 
Two hundred strong, we took the College by storm, 
allowing no line of activities to pass us. In all stu- 
dent organizations we were well represented. In Y. M. 
C. A. work, literary societies and athletics members 
of our class took an active part. This session passed 
quietly by; our football team saw no defeat, and in 
other athletics we were equally successful. At the 
close of the session, although our number had been 
greatly diminished, we were determined to come back 
and make our second year even more successful than 
the first. 

64 



The fall of 1907 saw a smaller but wiser looking bunch of young fellows roll 
into old A. & M. Greetings were exchanged, old times talked of, and it was not 
long before we were again hard at work. Difficult problems confronted us 
this year, but they were finally mastered, and we came out once more on top. 
Football this year was even better than before. Although we were not cham- 
pions, five of our men — more than any other class furnished — were chosen for 
the "All Class" team. Several men from our ranks helped to sustain the name 
of A. & M. in the football world and to make this a successful year for us. 
Thus, another year passed, witli few failures and many successes, and we enter 
into ' ' Juniordom. ' ' 

The opening day of the session of '08- '09 saw barely half of our original 
number back at school. What we lacked in numbers, however, was made up 
for by achievements of those who were here. The captain of the '08 football 
team was a Junior. Several men on the 'Varsity team were Juniors, and the 
"Scrub" team was composed almost entirely of members of the same class. 
In class football the Juniors made a record of which we were justly proud. In 
spite of the fact that many of our best men were not allowed to play on account 
of having played "Scrub" ball, the Junior team enjoyed a triumph which 
will be hard to duplicate by any class team. Their goal line was never crossed 
during the entire season, while eighty-five points were piled up against their 
opponents. Two-thirds of the men on the "All Class" team were Juniors. Not 
only in football were the Juniors successful, but in baseball as well. In fact, 
we were the champion athletes of the College. Nor was it in athletics alone 
that the name Junior was synonymous with victory; their representatives at 
commencement stirred the souls of all who heard them in the Alumni debate. 

We are now Seniors. What a step it has been from '06 to '10, but we have 
stepped it safely. The responsibilities of the Senior Class have rested lightly, 
but safely, on our broad shoulders, and the discipline of the College has been 
kept above its usual standard. The Seniors have supported the 'Varsity football 
team better than any other class in College, five of our classmen earning the 
"M." The captain of the football team is a Senior, as is the baseball team's 
captain. In class football our record of last year was not duplicated, but on 
a field of snow our team bravely and fiercely defended the title won only last 
year; but, as luck would have it, ours was not the successful team. 

Such is our past and present. The future confronts us, and soon we will 
fight the mighty battles of actual life — with its failures or its successes — for 
years to come. Be those failures or successes what they may, we push on 
with pride in the past and great hopes for the future.

Rime of the Ancient Freshman Class. 



It was an ancient Freshman Class, 

'Twas born in nineteen-six ; 
By their long white pants and drooping caps, 

Now how came they in this fix? 

The College doors are opened wide, 

And we are next to leave ; 
The Faculty met, the day is set — 

One long sad sigh they heave. 

The President sat in his chair — 

He cannot choose bnt weep ; 
He knows, alas ! this Senior Class 

He cannot always keep. 

Exams were here, exams were there, 

Exams were all around; 
They flunked us once, they flunked ns twice, 

We breathed without a sound. 

At length we crossed the Junior line, 
Through thick and thin we came, 

As if we had been twelve sages wise — 
We won our Senior name. 

We used the brains we ne'er had used, 
And round and round they spun ; 

And every day it was work, not play, 
Until we've almost won. 

The long white pants, the drooping cap, 

We've worn with brazen face; 
We were the first that ever burst 

That custom at this place. 

Down dropt the wrath of the younger boys, 

'Twas sad as sad could be, 
And we did speak only to squelch 

Their meaning pleasantry. 



67 



Day after day, day after day. 

We work nor cease, nor stop. 
As pale as the tombstone while 

That on us soon may drop. 

Knowledge, knowledge everywhere, 

And all our brains did fill ; 
Knowledge, knowledge evervwlh re, 

But not one drop to spill. 

There passed a weary term, each brain 
Was dry, and thin each frame — 

A weary term, a. weary term. 
I low thin each weary frame, 

When, looking forward, we beheld 
A letter by each name. 

At first it seemed an A to lie. 

And then it seemed a C; 
It moved and moved, and took al last 

An awful shape to me. 

"See, see," we cried; "it moves no more!" 

Again to work go we, 
Without a C, without an P— 

< )ur lowest is a !). 

I fear thee, ancient record hook, 

I fear thy fatal page; 
And thou art big, and true, and sure. 

( >ur fears cannot assuage. 

A dream of joy! Is this, indeed, 

'I'he grand old "dip " 1 see? 
Is this the sign, 1 he blessed sign, 

That I have a degree 1 ? 

• ). take me, lake me, loving t rain. 

Back' to my old homestead. 
Where 1 may live, and move, and breathe, 

And resl my weary head. 

Farewell, farewell -hut this I tell 

To thee, thou Junior hatch, 
('mini not, 1 say. fair ones, count net 

Thy chicks before they hatch.

Last Will and Testament of the Senior Class of the 
Mississippi Agricultural and Mechanical College 



Know All Men b/i These Presents: 

We, the Senior Class of the Mississippi Agricultural and Mechanical College, 
mindful that our exceptionally brilliant careers as students of this institution 
are about to come to a close; and, being remarkably sound in mind and body, 
as well as memory, and at the height of our ulory, and considering the great 
loss ( "?) the Faculty and students of this school will sustain by our departure, 
do make and publish this our last will and testament in matter and form 
following : 

We recognize the looks of inordinate desire and longing cast upon us by 
the Juniors, the appreciative awe in which we are held by the Sophomores, the 
untranslatable look of admiration and wonder with which the verdant Freshman 
follow our every move, and the worship, which amounts almost to idolatry, 
evinced by the denizens of "Prepdom. " 

We appreciate the respect and consideration which our worthy Faculty has 
shown us. We are able to understand and sympathize with the heartache, 
sorrow and gloom the absence of the Class of '10 will cast upon the institution; 
and, while we fully understand the impossibility of appeasing it, we think it 
may justify us to bequeath a few of our valuable gifts to the suffering humanity 
left behind at the A. & M.. under the tender mercies of those who have labored 
with might and main — alas, in vain! — to keep us down to the level of ordinary 
graduates. 

First: To the Juniors we bequeath the most valuable of our jewels, viz., the 
Society of the Starkville Four Hundred. We beg you to treat them kindly; 
and, while you can never hope to gain the affections and hearts of these — for 
both the affections and the hearts are the exclusive property of the Class of 
1910 — yet, out of kindness and consideration, try to be as tender with them as 
we were. We also advise the Juniors to fasten their aspirations to a star, or, 
in other words, to aim at the mark the Class of '10 has left, although they 
will never attain it, and it nevermore can be reached. 

Second: To the Sophomores we leave a few of our deep thoughts, which, if 
planted and properly tended in cerebral tissue, we have no doubt will grow 

69 



and bloom profusely. Our high ambition we likewise have to leave them. We 
desire them to aim higher than Juniordom ; have an ambition to some day reach 
our high estate. We regret that they may never be such as we are. 

Third : Our great caution and deliberation we leave to the Freshmen, as 
we have observed them to be sadly lacking- in these qualities. We also advise 
the Freshmen to study the following books, which we individually bequeath to 
the Library for the special use of this class. These volumes are the results of 
our wide experience in the various subjects, being as follows: 

"Scholarly Fame, and How to Attain It " —Earl S. Brashier. 

"Sweethearts, and How to Train Them" — Same author. 

"Pleasant Looks, and How to Wear Them" — Fesser Jones. 

"The Imitation of Demosthenes" — Brougher. 

"Heart-Smashing, of Theory and of Practice" — Lottie Cothern. 

"How to Study" — H. CI. Carpenter. 

"My Sporting Record, and How 'Twas Won" — Graves. 

"Scientific Study of English "- —Pat Greaves. (This volume contains copious 
notes by the author. ) 

"The Relation of Bird Hunting to the Art of 'Sticking' Preps" — Bethea. 
{Profusely illustrated with actual photographs.) 

' ' Normalite Manual ' ' — Pou. 

"Courtship at a Distance" — Polk. 

Fourth: We desire that our unpaid bills for candy, ice cream, coca-cola and 
various and sundry other necessary articles, which will come to us in the next 
few days, and which we have been unable to pay on account of cheap money 
(our dollars going only so far as the ordinary half-dollar), be paid by the 
juvenile "Preps." We have often observed their deficiencies in business mat- 
ters, also that they did not have enough work to occupy their time, and desiring 
them to he more mindful of the dignity imparted to them by our shining example, 
we bequeath as above. 

Fifth: To the Student Body we leave our seats in the Chapel, likewise in 
the Mess Hall, and bequeath to them the glittering gems found in James' 
Psychology, Organic Chemistry; likewise the inspiring geometrical and trigo- 
nometrical truths expounded by Wentworth. From experience, we advise you 
not to drink too deeply at this fountain of knowledge, as it is likely to cause 
"brain-storm" and other complications. 

Sixth: We appoint our dear friends, the Faculty, joint executors of this 
our last will and testament, an honor which we hope they will appreciate. 

(Signed) Class op 1910.

Junior Class History. 



At intervals in all histories there are eras in which the nations reach a high 
water mark, and such an era occurred in the history of the A. & M. College 
with the advent of the Class of 1911. I do not mean to say that this class is 
faultless, but modesty to say that their faults arc not so great as to materially 
interfere with their good qualities. 

At the beginning of the current session we gathered together and elected 
officers, in which election we were fortunate in choosing competent men for 
the various positions. The number matriculated in the class this year is about 
as large as usual. Several of our old members, however, are not back, but new 
men from other colleges have taken their places. 

At various times since the establishment of this college the different classes 
have striven to establish some form of dramatic club. All, however, have been 
unsuccessful until the present Junior Class organized, under the leadership of 
their former professor of English, the Cap and Bells Dramatic Club. Under 
adverse conditions the club grew, because all the members worked faithfully, 
and as a result of pulling together their first play, "Dizzy's Dilemmas," the 
first play ever given by students on the college stage, was presented with 
marked success on the night of November 10, 1909. 

In all phases of college life, in fact, the Class of 1911 ranks high. They have 
heartily supported the V. M. C. A. and Athletic Association, and in football 
they furnished five men, who helped to constitute the team that won glory for 
A. & M. in the autumn of 19011. No other class, we believe, can boast of this 
number of football men. 

And in class football! This is where the Juniors manifested their superiority 
over the other classes, both as players and in the support of the team. They 
won a game over French (amp. and without a "scrub" defeated the Seniors for 
the college championship. 

Let us hope that the remainder of our college life will be as successful as 
the past has been. We are now finishing the third quarter of our college course, 
and will soon be called upon to shoulder the responsibilities of a senior class. 
We feel assured that our class will be amply able to head the student body next 
autumn, and will strive to mark an eminent era in the history of "old" A. & M.

Sophomore Class History. 



In September of 1909 there gathered to the portals of old A. & M. a hand of 
about a hundred and fifty young men to take up the duties of Sophomore — the 
hardest year of the college course Having had. however, the training of the 
previous year or two, they were undaunted by the greal difficulties confronting 
them, ami they immediately set lied down to earnest work. 

Early in the Freshman year of this class, sonic of the instructors, penetrating 
the rough and verdant exteriors and seeing the capabilities, the sterling worth, 
and the determination of these men, declared Ihal the Class of 1912 would 
furnish many illustrious characters in the future of not only our Stale, bul of 
our country also. 

The record made so far has even surpassed the expectations of the most 
optimistic members of the Faculty. The stupendous strides already made in 
the development of the class is proving the truth of the prophecy, and it is now 
becoming apparent that this class will scud out men to take brilliant parts in 
the affairs of citizenship and of government; men who will meel and overcome 
<'YtTy obstacle: men fearless in their stand for what is right. 

ATHLETICS. 

Our class furnished to the 'Varsity eleven Ibis year Rhodes, Williams and 
Bass, three men who did much to make it the winning team Ihal it was. A 
Sophomore is captain of the track team, and has held thai position for two years. 
That he is well qualified tor the place was proved Last year on Field Day. Our 
men have taken a leading part in track" work from the first. For baseball, tennis 
and gymnasium we have a number of good men who will do their pari with credit. 

While the (dass football record for the presenl year was no1 so brilliant, yd 
there was much good material, and the final defeat only after two very hard 
games was in no small measure due to the absence of some of the besl players, 
occasioned by physical disabilities, and to the very late rearrangement of the 
team, causing some unavoidable confusion. II istorian.

Freshman History. 



As it would take volumes to relate all concerning the Class of 1913, it is 
deemed wise to mention only a dew facts which are self-evident. In the first 
place, it is really a pleasure to write aboul such a bright looking bunch of fellows 
now standing at the beginning of the rough and stormy pathway leading to the 
great "hall of fame," all eager to have their names inscribed upon its walls. In 
many respects the 1913 Class has uot been excelled by any class of the College, 
and in some respects it is Ear superior to many. This is shown by its represen- 
tatives on the different teams, in the different clubs and societies, by its diligent 
students, hard-working, earnest men, and in many oilier ways needless to mention. 

It was a day in September thai the Class of 1913 made its first appearance in 
the College circles. City boys, dressed in their best, and frost-bitten countrymen 
were to be seen coming in on every train to make up our class. Some young 
men like Brevard and his roommates, being so rich as to smoke 40-eent cigars 
and ride up to the College in a hack. They are from Memphis; that is the 
reason. The old men seemed glad to meet ns and willing to answer all our 
curious questions, but a few of us were roped in by being sent to Lieut.-Col. 
Bethea's room for the Bath-house key. From every train that came in during 
the next few days, groups of students came up to the College and were greeted 
by the ones who had arrived before. The height of good feeling reigned between 
the students — all classes, old and new, mingled together for the first few days. 

Curry thinks he will quit College and go on the stage; all he needs is a monkey 
and a hand-organ, and he will be ready to post bills, giving his first performance 
in Starkville. His classmates think this is a good plan, as he is always heard if 
not seen. His motto is, "No fool, no tun." Arrington, although a football 
man, lacks his parent's care, as he still erics for the "bottle." Little Bethea and 
Egerton are very close chums, as quite frequently one can hear Egerton call 
clown to Bethea: "Hey, Ollie! where are you at?" Ollie replies, "Down in 
this here end of the hall listening to a fiddle." Anderson tries to impress upon 
our minds that lie can sing, and he is frequently heard singing, "I Wonder 
Who's Kissing Her Now." It seems as though his heart has been captured by 
some fair maiden, and his thoughts dwell on her constantly. Ask Prof. Ricks 
about this. Now comes Willie, better known as "Paul Willie," who says that 
he would rather be in Houston with the girl that stole his heart than to be here 
eating Dr. Howard's sausages. Willie is a dead game sport and claims to be 
somewhat of n musician. liratlon. acting hall orderly, is making strenuous 
efforts to get a "grease" with Major Bowman in order that he may get a cor- 

102 



poralship in his Sophomore year. Wingfield and Robinson, a dashing couple of 
handsome youths, are leading Starkville society. 

As we will have to stop some time, it might as well be now, Leaving volumes to 
remain untold about the class whose triumphs and successes will be renewed 
with greater and greater luster in time to come. Look out for the Class of 1913, 
which has only been introduced in this brief sketch. They will some day make 
their mark in the world. 

Then clear the track our Engineers have built; 

Our Farmer Boys will answer every call ; 
Qui- Pedagogues will teach a skeptic world 

Thirteen is not unlucky, after all. 

J. E. Brougher, Historian.

"Prep." Class History. 



One of the many things that happened on or about September 16, 1909, was 
the gathering together of the boys who form our "Prep." class. They came 
from all parts of the State seeking the "wine of life" — "true philosophy of 
life." It would be imposs ble to describe the members of our class as they 
appeared then. I think, bo. wer, that they can be classified roughly under three 
heads, namely, Green, Greener, Greenest. 

We came to college with man,/ ideas and purposes in view. Some came merely 
to satisfy curiosity, to experiment with college life; some came with the true 
purpose of improving their condition and to prepare themselves to be more 
able to meet the responsibilities of life, while others came, hardly knowing for 
what reason — they just came. 

On our arrival we found many things that aroused our curiosity. One of the 
first to meet our gaze was a war man whom we soon learned to know as the 
Commandant. We have great difficulty in ascertaining his ways and methods 
of doing things. Some of us (having been put wise by the old boys), on first 
entering school, greeted his Honor in many ways; some gracefully bowing to 
him; some saluting; others giving him the hearty handshake — glad to see you, etc. 
The next thing that met our wonder and tended to make us homesick was our 
experience in the mess hall. We were not very familiar with the technical 
terms of the bill of fare, and therefore had much trouble in making ourselves 
understood — also failing many times to get any "Zip," "Wasp Nest," "Bull 
Neck" or "Bingo." 

However, after encountering and overcoming the difficulties that a new 
"prep." meets on coming to A. & M., we settled down to work — patiently awaiting 
the arrival of the uniforms. 

Many things are required of the "prep.," such as guarding the dormitory, 
duty as hall orderly, furnishing the Seniors with smoking tobacco, matches, and 
a few other things of minor importance. 

The old "preps." who were here last year tell us that we are unfortunate in 
not having Prof. Garner at the head of our department. They say that it is 
"Peters" Philosophy that has put many "preps." on the road to success. 
Nevertheless, we all honor, respect and love his successor. 

Wre are one of the lucky classes of this session in having a co-ed. Whatever be 
the position of the "preps." as held among the dignities of the upper class, our 

109 



future is just as bright as that of any other class if we take advantage of the 
opportunities offered us and, 

When from this place we depart. 
And into life's broad field we start, 
High on the ladder of success 
Will be our mark. 

A. N. Hardy, Historian.

"Prep." Poem. 

Here's to the preps, of 1910, 

And a jolly bunch are we ; 
A jollier bunch never has been, 

Since the year 1893. 

Some of us hardly know ABC; 

Some cannot spell dog or cat. 
But great men some '11 surely be, 

You can bet your head on that. 

Homesickness we have no more, 
And we are getting sweet on zip, 

Which fact will make us have girls galore; 
Classmates please take the tip. 

We are all very well contented 

Having others drive sense in our heads, 
But doggone the man that invented 

These blamed old four-story beds. 

We'll have a rough road to go over, 
But success will come in the end. 

Then we can wallow m clover 
With credit to the A. & M. 



W. B. Davis.

College Song. 



Let sound the trumpet note of praise; 

Let voices sing exultant lays 

To thee, our College dear, 

Old A. & M., dear A. & M. 

May glory crown thy nohle name; 

Thy sons reward thee with their fame. 

All honor, praise b( j thine throughout all age. 

II 

When learned book and treatise wise 
Have vanished with their makers' lives 
Our friendship's bonds will last 
That are sealed at A. & M. 
So join our hands, and join our hearts, 
With one acclaim the song upstarts, 
All glory, honor, praise to A. & M. 

III. 

AVhen drifted far from thy old halls 

And mem'ry ladened twilight falls 

Our thoughts will turn to thee, 

Old A. & M., dear A. & M. 

The happy hours of gilded youth, 

Bejeweled each with joy and truth. 

Will be a treasured store for age's dreams.

The Facultee in Inferno. 



I was lord of a business and ruler of an office wide, 

With ground glass doors, round top desks, and slaves on every side. 

I had graduated from A. & M. and gone at once to work, 

And now was boss of a master firm, having risen up from clerk. 

I was working overtime one night, and sat busied at my desk. 

Save me the place was empty ; I had dismissed all the rest. 

Heedless of the flight of time I still kept at my task ; 

When I'd finally finished it the midnight hour was passed. 

The busy city outside had quieted for the night, 

In the offices here occupied mine was the only light. 

Too, the entire building was silent and in gloom. 

Through the empty halls my footsteps rang, as I left my room. 

The elevator shaft I sought and rang and rang the bell. 

I murmured low when no answer came, ' "Damn that machine to h — , " 

Then suddenly I remembered that they had long since stopped, 

When, lo and behold ! down from the roof one dropped. 

Rapidly the boy inside opened the door with a clang 

And his voice came forth, "Here's a car, I heard you when you rang.'' 

I stepped into the car, and down, down, down we shot, 

'Till I cried out in great alarm, but the boy heeded me not. 

Then he looked at me with an awful smile, "When you rang that bell 

I distinctly heard you say that you wished this car in h — . " 

The ear kept up the swift descent; I shivered and grew pale, 

For I saw now that my companion had long horns and a tail. 

But the Devil calmed and eased my fears when he somewhat laughing cried, 

"There is no need to frightened be; you won't be hurt by the ride. 

We'll soon be there and I promise now that there'll be plenty to see, 

For I'll take you to the part reserved for the A. & M. Facultee." 

At these words I grew quite bold and clasped his hand, you bet 

For I remembered the "Extra Drill " I'd received from that same set. 

So down we dropped for quite a while; then the Devil stopped the car, 

Picked up his tail, threw open the door and said, "Well, here we are." 

First I saw a great big sign that hung on the wall to the right. 

It read, "Get your guides here," and also, "We are open all night." 

"I'll give you the best we have," and motioned with his hand. 

At the signal a guide came forth from the nearby standing band. 

"This is our best one, Virgil. He will take you safely through, 

Explain the place, show all the sights, and tell you what to do." 

113 



So Virgil called a cab and directed me inside, 
Jumped in himself and we were off on our curious ride. 
As we entered the part of Hell reserved for the Facultee 
I saw as peculiar a sight as one would want to see. 
For there on a table was spread a meal. Oh, 'twas a kingly repast ! 
And right by the table a little man was to a rock made fast. 

With all his might he would strain at his elm in. and make a grab at the food, 
But in spite of all his efforts, reach it he never could. 
"That's little Dock Howard," said my versatile guide. 
"He's eternally doomed to that rock to be tied, 
With all that good grub spread out on the table, 
But get it, however he tries, he will never be able. 
This comes on the account of his great appetite ; 
His record was seven deserts in a single night. 
Doesn't the next make a ludicrous sight, 
Swatting a tennis ball with all Ins might'/ 
That's Frederick D. Mellen. He had such a lust 
For playing tennis on earth that now do it he must. 
This is Fritz J. Waddelle, who thought he was clever, 
And now he must sit, using all of his wit, memorizing verses ever. 
Then comes Darnall ; his eternal doom 
Is to push a baby carriage around this great room. 
Do you see that rough bum down there in the dirt, 
With the rough, shaggy beard, and the torn flannel shirt? 
That's Koby W. Harned, and the penalty that he pays 
Is to live like a tramp the rest of his days. 
Here's old Prof. "Garner." He's locked in a cage. 
Don't you see how he fights and how he does rage? 
He wants to get out and be married you know, 
But friend "Monte" won't let him go. 
And Uncle James Brown Bowen," cried Virg with a laugh, 
"From what he is saying you would think that he had gone daft. 
He's eternally doomed to speak Foreign Prose 
Before a class of young devils who speak through their nose. 
Andrew Maret Maxwell is condemned to he bound 
And gagged so that he can't make a sound, 
And to sit with his ear in a phonograph's horn 
To hear the hot air wasted since he was born. 
Dr. W. F. Hand eternally must 
Sit and mix chemicals that swell up and bust. 
That young Dr. Lewis was too much of a kid, 

114 



To be held responsible for the things that he did. 

Your friend, Prof. Snow, has been placed in charge 

Of the imps of Hades, both small and large. 

He must wash 'em and dress 'em, and tend to their clothes 

And they follow him round wherever he goes. 

John J. Hood is to a tub fastened with a line, 

And must continue to sew buttons for the rest of his time. 

William H. Magruder must eternally recite 

To a devil who tells him that he doesn't do it right. 

He must pull at his beard and open up his mouth, 

But never be forgetful of what comes about. 

Lafayette "Hutch" lias been turned to a stone, 

And set up as a statue at the head of the throne. 

Roby W. Harned has also been doomed 

To chase a wounded grasshopper around a three-cornered room. 

With his hands tied behind him, 'Bully' can't do any smoking, 

Though devils are always cigars at him poking. 

V. William Bragg to that rock made fast, 

While a line of pretty girls are always walking past. 

Capt. Hugh Critz has to keep down the noise. 

Don't you sec him with his '(let down to business, boys?' 

****** 

And now the trip was over ; my guide had shown me all, 
And again we stood awaiting at the elevator tall. 
I stepped into the car, the door rang with a clang. 
And to the sound of the rising bell, out of bed I sprang. 



115 



On The Local. 



His courage had arrived at the psychological moment. 

"It's a pity we don't know each other." 

The brown feather betrayed a slight motion of surprise. 

"Perhaps you have met me before," she suggested, ironically. 

He was encouraged, and overlooked the haughty elevation of her chin. 

"No, I haven't — that's the pity. I never meet anybody I know on 'the local.' 

There was no perceptible sign of interest. 

"But I always seem to meet somebody I'd like to know." It was risky. 

"And were you as rude to the others?" She did not deem it necessary to raise 
her eyes. 

"I wasn't as bold, but circumstancs are different. You see, we are alone — 

"More reason why I should be free from discourtesies. Even the conduc- 
tor — ' ' '/ 

"That's just it. lie could speak to you without eliciting your disapproval." 

"In a business way, yes." 

"Well, if I talk business—" 

"1 am none of your business." 

"But suppose — " 

"Suppose we don't argue it." It was hardly a rebuke. 

He was studying the landscape. She made a careful survey of his profile. The 
little frown seemed to make it more attractive. 

She realized that she had been trapped into talking. She closed her lips 
determinedly and her gaze shifted to the mirror at the forward end of the car. 
Gradually she became aware that she was staring full into the reflection of his 
amused face. 

She started involuntarily, and was immediately ashamed of herself. 

"Am I so bad?" he smiled. 

Her head turned from him meaningly. He could barely see her profile. 

Suddenly he arose and disappeared at the farther end of the car, but returned 
immediately. His features were forced into an expression of mock seriousness. 

"Magazines!" he announced in unmistakable imitation. "Periodicals, 
madanie?" 

He boldly displayed a single volume. She took in the worn edges and the 
torn back at a glance. An idea suddenly occurred to her. 

"How much?" she began fumbling in her satchel. She took the magazine 
and held a coin toward him. 

It was a new obstacle. 

"Why, madanie, this is — er — a — sample copy." 

116 



"Then accept this as a tip." She was enjoying his confusion. He hadn't 
foreseen this. 

He saw no alternative. "In that case, I feel it my duty to explain certain 
features — " 

' ' I detest agents ! ' ' 

"Certain special features, the first of which — " 

"Is your name written boldly across the top. I think I can manage, Mr. 
Davis!" 

"Then we are introduced," triumphantly. 

"Are we?" 

"I know enough about you — " 

' ' My knowledge of you will suffice. ' ' 

"I know that you are just the kind of girl I may expect to meet only under 
adverse circumstances. Why is it that cousins and every-day people whom you 
know are always so different — so, well — unattractive?" 

She was turning the pages slowly and apparently without interest. 

"For instance," he foud it necessary to place his finger upon one of the pages 
—"there is one of my cousin's chums. I am to meet her this evening. Why 
doesn't she ride on trains and let other people be chums?" 

"The girl regarded the penciled caricatures critically. She was biting her 
lips to keep from smiling. 

"Mouth a bit too large," she commented to herself. She held the magazine 
at full length and tilted her head to one side with the air of a serious critic. 

Davis laughed, and the girl smiled in spite of herself. 

"Not large enough. You don't know chums. Tall, slender, actually slim, 
wear spectacles — always. ' ' 

He darted a hasty glance at her dark eyes. "Gray eyes, too, you know — 
probably keeps her mouth open all the time." 

"I'd draw the line if she kept her mouth open very much." She felt it her 
duty to utilize this opportunity. 

"Don't you feel sorry for me?" 

"The — er — chum has my sympathy." 

"Why am I so bad? I am sure if our positions" — he found a new idea. "Will 
my talking to myself disturb you?" 

"I can't regulate that." 

"Well, it's just this way,'' he soliloquized, "I have a cousin — but it's not my 
fault. The cousin has a chum and she thinks she's an angel. That's her fault. 
I've met such angels before " 

"Having any fun?" 

' ' I could have more. ' ' 

117 



"If I could ask a question — ' musingly, "it would be about why you are 
going there in spite of this." 

"Promised. I'm out to till out a house party, you see. I don't expect a good 
time. It's merely a matter of duty." 

"One should do one's duty by all means." 

The whistle was blowing. Davis turned and addressed her directly: 

"Perhaps you will be relieved to know that I am going to leave you at the 
next station. I have forfeited my little chance of ever knowing you. Of course 
we will never see each other again, and, if you'll allow me — I'm sure I'll be sorry. 
You won't mind my saying that. I believe I'll even miss you — am I acting 
funny'? I never was in such a position before. I hope you are not actually 
angry with me. Circumstances should alter cases, sometimes." 

She was having- a great deal of unnecessary trouble with a tiny valise strap, 
but managed to hear. 

The train was about to stop. She arose. 

"You are not going to get off here?" His surprise was genuine. 

"Of course. What would your cousin think of a guest who deserted her at 
the critical moment"?" 

"Why, I'm not deserting. 1 wish — ," he paused and began thinking. 

"I expect I'll have to see you again," she said. He was following her to the 
door. "And I'll try not to keep my mouth open all the time." 

It was too great a thing to be easily comprehended. 

"Are you May Weston?" he asked abruptly. 

She smiled maliciously at his obtuseness. "I'll he so introduced, unless you — 
desert. ' ' 

"One must do one's duty," he quoted, meaningly.

A Song at Twilight. 

Veiled in the mists of the twilight time, 

When the crescent moon swings low, 
Dim as the dream of a fleeting rhyme. 

Come visions of long ago, 
And their voices, faint as a far off chime 

That peals in the afterglow. 

Call through the dusk, and they hring to me 

The fields by the river's shore, 
Where the iris flung its fragrance free, 

The dew-bedecked meadows o'er, 
Where I wandered in years that are past, with thee ; 

In the years that are no more. 

Sweetheart of old, the day is done ; 

And the swallow seeks her nest. 
The lengthening shadows, one by one, 

Stretch far from the dark'ning West. 
But dreams fade not with the fading sun, 

Nor die when the world is at rest. — Selected.

A "Visitor" Caught 



(With apologies to Poe.) 

T. 

Once upon an evening dreary, while I pondered, weak and weary, 
Over all the morrow's lessons which I'd never seen before, 
While I nodded, nearly naping, suddenly there came a tapping 
As of someone gently rapping, rapping at my chamber door. 
" Tis some visitor," I muttered, "tapping at my chamber door." 
Yes 'twas this, but something more. 

II. 

And the gentle, soft, uncertain rustling of a bedroom slipper 
Thrilled me — filled me with a dawning pleasure never felt before ; 
So that now to still the beating of my heart, I rose in answer, 
And the door threw gently open to the skipper standing there, 
Laden down with goodies, was he — dropped them to my chamber floor, 
"Eat," he said, "I've plenty more!" 

III. 

Presently we both felt stronger, hesitating then no longer, 
Gay we got, in joy forgetting that the Colonel was next door. 
Quickly came he rapping, rapping, tapping at my chamber door 
When — cadet and feast and books and courage rolled 'neath bed on chamber floor. 
Then I rose to meet the Colonel — then I opened wide the door. 
Monster there, but something more. 

IV. 

Right into my chamber peering, while I stood there quaking, fearing, 
Meeting, facing looks no mortal ever dared to face before ; 
But the silence was unbroken, and the stillness gave no token 
Of the skipper and his goodies stretched upon my chamber floor. 
But— soon he spied him 'neath the drapings, dragged him out my chamber door, 
Quoth the Colonel, ' ' Caught ! once more ! ' ' 



120 



Back into my chamber turning, all my soul within me burning 
At the trouble I was in then, with demerits all in store, — 
Surely thought I, there is pardon, pardon for this burden sore. 
Let me see then what therein is, and for mercy him implore, 
But in grave and stern decorum, just one word had he in store; 
Quoth the Colonel, "Nevermore!" 

VI. 

Much I marveled this inhuman flesh to hear discourse so sternly, 
How his answer, with its meaning, little pleasure did restore. 
And we can not help agreeing that no living A. & M. Cadet 
Ever yet was blest with having feasts approved 'hind chamber door. 
Scowls and squelches all await him, and the Colonel's only lore 

Is for skipping — "Nevermore!" F. C. B.

Taps. 



For simple. sadness there ne"er was found 
A sweeter strain than that clear sound. 
muse and musician, give 'tentive ear i 
Tis music and melody that you hear 
When "Taps" is blowing. 

Why is it, my lad, my lad in gray, 

We feel so sad '. Oh, can you say*: 
Why is it that we hold our breath 
J 11 I lie hush — so slid — as still as death, 
When "Taps" is blowing? 

Listen, my lad. and you shall hear 
Just why it is we drop a tear, 
As if gathered round a new-made mound 
W 7 e bare our heads to its sacred sound, 
"When "Taps" is blowing. 

Full many a thousand heroes brave 
Were brought from battlefield to grave, 
And there, with no loved ones to Aveep, 
AVere loft to their eternal sleep, 
While "Taps" was blowing. 

Through the ages its sad notes have blown 
Amid death and destruction, until it has grown 
That when Ave hear those notes today 
We list to death's soft lullaby, 
When "Taps" is blowing. 

Are wo nol drifting, nor stopping to think, 
Until we have reached the eternal brink'? 
Have Ave convictions and lived to them true? 
Then there's no fear when 'lis whispered to you 
That "Taps" is blowing. 

— Alumnus.

A. &M. 



I love the trees that grow so tall, 
With their brown leaves whirling fall 

And moulder in the sod; 
I love the gentle, sighing breeze 
That whispers softly through the trees 

And makes the bushes nod. 

I love the gravel walks that trace 
Their way about this dear old place 

Aud lead from door to door ; 
I love the turning, winding stair 
That rears its spans into the air 

And climbs from floor to floor. 

I love to hear the bugle blow 
Reminding me that I must go 

And shoulder my old gun ; 
Its stirring notes filled father' soul 
With feelings he could not control 

When heard in '61. 

Suspended 'neath old Jersey's throat, 
The cow-bell rings its brazen note, 

A sound I love to hear ; 
If echoing from the meadowdand 
Or rattling in some rooter's hand, 

Its sound is always dear. 

It is a pleasant task indeed 
To watch the Jersey cattle feed 

And switch their dangling tails ; 
To rub their coats as fine as silk 
And to hear the streaming of the milk 

Into the ringing pails. 

For everything that makes a sound, 
For every object on the ground, 

My life is full of them. 
And not a place in this broad land 
Was ever loved by any band 

As we love A. & M.

Farming of To-day. 

Oh ! groom ouch gentle bossy cow, 
And crimp old Dobbin 's tail ; 

Tie pink ribbons on the milking stool, 
And hand-paint every pail. 

Pa! rawhide boots are obsolete; 
Your blue .jeans put away, 
Farm work now is glorified, 

Henceforth our work's mere play. 

Mother, don yonr pompadour, 
Your "Merry Widow" bring 

With breakfast food we'll feed the calves 
Adown by yonder spring. 

I've pinned an orchid on my coat, 
My hat's of a modish green, 

I now wear gloves when making hay — 
Hoe 'taters by machine. 

Gee! won't the folks all stare 
To see how we've progressed— 

Boiled dinners served a la carte, 
Tripe all crumped, paper dressed. 

Our hired man calls for finger bowls, 

I drive my own red car ; 
Who's wrought this wonderful change? 

AATiy, 'twas the A. & M., sah !

When the Year Is Old 

Gone is the gold from the field and the hill, 
Gone is the purple and red from the oak; 
The woodland is sere and the winds are chill, 
The red birds down in the thickets are still, 
And the spirit of summer song- is broke. 

The leaves all crisp and drifted lie 

In the sheltered hollows still and cold, 

And rustle 'neath drops of sleet that fly 

From the angry front of a steel-gray sky ; 

For the year is growing old, my dear, 
The year is growing old. 

The silent snow birds come and go ; 

The wild ducks long have flown from the creek ; 
And softly over the mountains bloAv 
The winds that whisper the coming snow 

And moan in the branches weird and bleak-. 

But little care I if the hard sleet flies, 

Or the snow and the winds are cold; 
With the dead brown fields and the hard gray skies, 
When a warm smile lights thy soft gray eyes 
With a love that never grows old, my dear, 

A love that never grows old. 



Special Military Companies. 

When the Legislature organized the Mississippi Agricultural and Mechanical 
College, it saw fit to dehar all "Greek letter fraternities" from either seeking 
members from its student body or to maintain chapter houses on the Campus. 
The wisdom of this action has been proved by the steady growth of the A. & M., 
while institutions where these fraternities flourish have been at a standstill. Our 
student body has not been slow about recognizing the "benefits to be derived 
from a fraternity — in promoting a brotherly feeling among the boys, initiating 
its members into society, and the numerous social advantages that come to 
members of such organizations — and have created special military companies 
that embody all the good qualities of the Greek letter fraternities without their 
faults. Our school has been singularly free from antagonism between members 
and non-members of these organizations. 

The purpose of all these companies is to make their members especially 
proficient in the handling of the rifle or sabre, and to vary the monotony of 
college life by dances, banquets and like social functions. 

The Sabre Company is composed of members of the Senior Class only. The 
drill is with sabres, and the members are selected because of their mental, moral, 
physical and social qualifications. In addition, they must handle the sabre with 
ease and grace. 

The Lee Guards and George Rifles are composed of members of any class in 
school, the other requirements being very similar to those of the Sabre Company. 
The annual "hops" held by these two organizations are probably the most 
enjoyable events in a college man's course. 

We believe that, in order for the proper spirit, toward the military feature of 
our College to be made manifest, these companies are indispensable. They should 
command the respect of both students and Faculty.

That Ma\e Love's Young Dream 

A youth, a maid, a hammock ; 

A summer crescent moon ; 
The scent of flowers ; some lire-flies ; 

A whip-poor-will's sad tunc; 

Some words very softly said ; 

A tender clasp that thrills ; 
A moment's brief forgetting 

Of human pains and ills; 

An ann that creeps and tightens, 

A deeper thrill of bliss, 
A head on some one's shoulder, 

A murmur and a kiss.

BILLINGSLEY, Captain. 



177 



POLLAHD, Manager. 





BILLINGSLEY, Captain. 
"Cap" was one of the few HKI8 'Varsity to be with 
us this year. lie made a good quarter, and the team 
will fee] his loss next year. His grit was shown in 
the I . of M. game, in which he played with one arm 
bone broken. 



POLLARD, Manager and Captain-Elect. 
"Polly" is easily of all-Southern caliber. His 



play- 



ing at left tackle was a feature in many games. He 
was selected for the "All-Southwestern." He will make 
a brilliant captain and player for next year. 





WILLIAMS. 
"Blondie" was alike the terror and admiration of all 
opponents. He is easily the best half-back since the 
days of "Big" Montgomery. Rival teams regret that he 
will be with us next year. 



RHODES. 
"Staid;," according to a prominent sporting editor, 
hits the line harder than any other full-hack in the 
South. He is the best defensive full-back that we have 
had in years. lie will be with us next year. 



178 





MAGILL. 

"May" comes to us from Birmingham. His playing 
vvas the feature of many games. He enjoys the record 
of having- run one hundred and five yards for a touch- 
down. It is to be hoped that he will return next year. 



JONES. 
"Cotton" is the best defensive end in the South. Fur- 
ther, lie receives forward passes as though that play 
was invented for his own particular use. The slogan of 
opposing teams was "Look out for that blond end." The 
hardest and most reliable tackier on the team. 





BASS. 
"Corporal" played his first year on 'Varsity, was a 
good, consistent end this 3'ear and promises to make a 
star next season. His playing was a feature in many 
games. 



SAVELY. 

"Jack" enjoys the distinction of being our heaviest 
man. He hits 'em low and hard. Always happy and 
contented. Loves all full-backs and enjoys "riiffin* 
things up."

ROSE. 

"Pedagogue" was one of last year's "target team" to 
make 'Varsity. Was the only man to play ill every 
minute of every game. The team will miss liim next 
yea r. 



ARRINGTON. 

"Mike" is tlie fastest line man in the South. His 
playing at right guard was always good. Though often 
outweighed, he was never outplayed. 





1'OIjK. 

"Steve" is a good, heady player. Lack of weight 

alone kept him oft the regular team. A good tackier 

and a hard worker. Showed up well in all games in 

which he participated. He will noi be with us next year. 



SEAL. 

"Leo" came to us from the class teams of last year. 
He is quick, willing and rough, a guard who can put 
up interference. Promises to make a brilliant player 
next year. 



180 




GILBERT. 
Lack of experience alone kept this promising man 
from a place on the regular team. Our most versatile 
player. Starred at guard against U. of M., though it 
was his first game :it that position. Another year's 
experience would develop him into a star.

Foot Ball. 



Football has always been one of the most popular athletic sports at A. & M., 
and students and Alumni are justly proud of the teams that have represented 
the College on the gridiron. Aside from the purely physical benefits to be 
derived, no other game does more to promote a strong college spirit, to inculcate 
the important lessons of perseverance, fair play, and self-control, and to shape 
and form a self-reliant and courageous manhood. For this reason, football has 
always received hearty encouragement here. It has rapidly increased in favor, 
and is now perhaps the most popular of all names in this school. 

To properly estimate the measure of success due to the 1909 football team is a 
difficult undertaking. Nine games in all were played, of which five were won 
and four were lost. A total of 153 points scored against opponents speaks for 
the offensive strength of the team, while the 1-1 points scored by opponents 
indicates a stubborn defense. The largest score made against the team, 15 to 0, 
was registered by L. S. TJ., October 15, at Baton Rouge. L. S. U. with a team 
of veterans played in better form that day than at any other time during the 
season, while our men, tired out by a long trip and playing on a strange field, 
suffered the first half from the stage fright that always fastens upon an inex- 
perienced team. If we except the Cumberland game played a week earlier, this 
game at Baton Rouge was, for eight of the men, their first big game. 

Although the season opened in the midst of great gloom and discouragement, 
due to the lack of experienced and promising material, things began to look a 
little better after the team defeated Birmingham College, 21 to 0. It was 
expected by many that Cumberland with her heavy team would have an easy 
victory, October 8, but, contrary to these expectations, we took the game by a 
score of 3-1- to 6. The defeat of L. 8. U., October 15, was by a score so much 
smaller than that of the year before Ilia! il was looked upon almost as a victory. 
October 21 A. & M. took sweet revenge on S. P. U. in Columbus, 31 to 0. 
Through the negligence of the referee, in failing to follow up the ball, a safety 
was awarded Tulane which gave them the game, 2 to 0, that was played in 
New Orleans October 30 before Presidenl Taft. Tulane played a superb 
defensive game, especially when her goal Line was in danger, but the honors of 
the game should have gone to A. & M., for we gained five times as much 
ground as Tulane and were in striking distance of her goal a half dozen times. 
While the score should have been at least to 0, no one who saw the game 
denied that A. & M. had the better team and the best of the game. Hurrying 

183 



back from New Orleans, we next took a game from Union University at Colum- 
bus, November 2, just three days later, by a score of 25 to 0. The following- 
Saturday, November 6, we lost to Howard College in Birmingham, (i to 0. Three 
hard games in one week, in addition to the long and hard trips, accounts for 
the slump in the team's playing. That it was a slump was shown when we 
defeated the University of Chattanooga the Following week, 37 to 6, while 
Howard was barely able to hold Chattanooga to a to score two weeks before. 

A. & M. lost the annual Thanksgiving game with the University of Mississippi 
by a score of 9 to 5, but she has nothing to be ashamed of. Outweighed 20 
pounds to the man, our team played the university to a standstill. Working a 
fake kick successfully for 50 yards on the first play after the kick-off, the 
University carried the ball across for a touchdown in four minutes after the 
game started. During the remainder of the half the ball was largely in the 
university's territory, Williams once missing a field goal from the 20-yard line 
by the narrow margin of a foot. In the second half A. & M. came back deter- 
mined and scored a touchdown, but Failed at goal. On two other occasions the 
ball was carried to the university's 15-yard line, only to be lost on downs. Luck 
showed itself in favor of the university, for, after recovering a misjudged punt, 
Haxton of the university kicked a held goal from a very difficult angle. It was 
a good performance, even though a lucky one, and decided the game, the final 
score being 9 to 5. It was a great game in every respect, and one of the best ever 
played between the two institutions. In most respects the 1909 season was a very 
satisfactory one. With a team averaging only 154 pounds per man. one of the 
lightest in the South, individual playing was necessarily sacrificed to team work-. 
The men played a clean, hard game and deserve much praise for their gentle- 
manly conduct while on the field. Moreover, each man maintained a good stand- 
ing in his class work'. It was such a team as brings credit to itself and to the 
college that it represents. 

For these reasons, it' for no other, the season of 1909 may be considered a 
most satisfactory one.

A Midnight Lullaby 

With apolotjii s to Wi/nkin, Blynkin and Nod. 

Captain, corporal and "Prep." one night 

Started off on a chicken raid ; 
Started each with "Plymouth Rock appetite," 

Which kept them unafraid. 
"What's on the wing.' Don*! tell me any lies," 

The watchman said to the three; 
"We are going to run for exercise — 

You can watch us yourself and see. 
Not a thing suspicions have we," 
Said Captain, 
Corpora i. 
And "Prep." 

The watchman grinned, and thunk a thought, 

As he looked at every shoe, 
And the thing they saw, and the thing they caught, 

Were seen by the Watchman, too. 
Pulling chickens off the fence 
Was one form of exercise, 
But Longboat wouldn't have been in it after the "shot," since 

That three would have won any prize. 
The watchman laughed as he thought about the lies. 
Of Captain, 
Corporal, 
And "Prep."

,1 Melodrama in One Act. 

HARRY. 

Dramatic Personae: The town girl, Gwendolyn, and the Sophisticated Senior 
Jack. Time: On a Sunday afternoon. Setting: Real close together and looking 
at a small picture of her. 

Sophisticated Senior (taking picture): "My! this is good of yon. I want 
this" (taking out watch and trying picture in il ). 

Town Girl Gwendolyn: "No, yon can't have that one. It's the only one I 
have — now." 

S. S. : "Now.' Well, how many have yon given away lately? and this one 
has been in a charm. Tis cut round. Who was it had il last?" 

Gwen: "Nobody. Give it back to me, please." 

S. S. : "No, give it to me. See how nice it looks in my watch 1 ?" (Hands her 
the watch and keeps picture.) 

She leans far back and away from hitu to read by light of window, making 
an irresistible effect. 

Gwen (reading) : "To Jack on his graduating day." She turns to find Jack 
looking her steadily in the eyes. She returns the steady look. He winks. She 
winks. She holds her hands oul I'or picture, and they engage in "hand to hand" 
conflict. 

Gwen: "Take your hands away. I've told yon three or four times." 

Jack lets go her hands and settles hack in Ins chair. 

(Iwen : "(Jive me back my picture now. I won't let yon have it." 

Jack: "But suppose I take it; would yon he angry?" 

Gwen: "Give it hack'. Yes, I would." 

Jack: "All right" (puts picture on desk near them) "I don't want it, if you 
don't want me to have il. " 

Gwen (daring him with her eyes and holding his hands away): "No, no. 
Don't! Stop! Don't! Stop!" 

Jack (doing his best, but failing): "Von are daring me. All right, young 
lady." (He tries again.) 

Gwen: "If yon don't stop, I'll call some one." 

Jack: "Please let me have it." 

Gwen: "Which?" 

202 



Jack: "The picture — er — both." (He tries to take them both.) 

Gwen (on the break away) : "Look here, young' college snob, if you think 

anything like that will be tolerated — I — Oh! I wouldn't have thought it of you. 

You certainly must have had a high regard for me." 

They sit with looks averted, and silence thick as mud reigns supreme. Jack 

in dejected attitude. 

Gwen (glancing at him) : "I would have been manly about it, anyhow." 
Jack (thinking of the masterly quality in man so much admired by woman) : 

"Oh, you would. I should have made yon. So here goes." (Pantomime, fast 

music and green lights.) 

CLIMAX. 

Gwen: "Oh, you insignificant little fool. Huh! (in deep disgust) if that's 
what you came here for, you may get your hat. I though! yon were a gentle- 
man." 

(Silence.) 

Jack (in utter contrition) : "Gwendolyn — " 

Gwen: "Miss Brown, please." 

Jack: "Aw, Gwen, I — you — I wouldn't have yon think this of me — that I 
am that kind of — altogether. (.Slow music during sad monologue.) Really, I 
have sane moments, though 1 do act the fool and did act it there, and the cad, too. 
Please say you forgive me. I am ashamed of myself. ' ' 

Gwen : "Well, what do you think of me"?" 

Jack : ' ' You didn 't do anything. ' ' 

Gwen: "Yon must have had a fine opinion of me in the first place." 

Jack: "No, I didn't — I mean I didn't have anything else. It wasn't that, I 
just couldn't help it. I admire you for your womanliness and ask your pardon." 

Gwen laughs. 

Jack: "Aw, were you fooling"?" 

Gwen (her face setting in hard lines again) : "No, I was not." 

Jack: "I didn't think you were. But, honest, how is a fellow to know? 
You'll grant that some girls do lead a fellow on and dare him. And if he doesn't 
do anything, he feels she's making fun of him, and calling him a stick. Isn't 
that so?" 

Gwen: "Yes." 

Jack: "And when he does respond, he is like a_ fellow stepping off into space 
in a strange place in the dark. He can't tell whether it's a six-inch fall to a 
Brussels carpet, or a ninety-foot plunge into rocks at the end. I tell you, it puts 
a fellow in a horrible position. He can 't tell, can he ? ' ' 

Gwen: "No." 

Jack : ' ' And while I admire the girl who has the moral nerve to stop it, why, 

203 



of course, when I think occasion demands it, I'll try to do my part. But I'm 

awfully sorry. I wouldn't lose your friendship or your regard. Will yon for- 
give, me?" 

CI wen: "Ye-es." 

Jack: "Thank you. I won't do it any more. I must catch the ear. May I 



come auain :

Told What It Was 



"Now, sir, I hope we shall have no difficulty in getting you to speak up," said 
the lawyer in a very loud, commanding voice. 

"I hope not, sir," shouted the witness, at the top of his lungs. 

"How dare you speak to me in that way?" cried the lawyer. 

"Because I can"! speak no louder, sir," said the hostler. 

"Have you been drinking?" 

"Yes, sir." 

"I should infer so from your conduct. What have you been drinking?" 

"Coffee," hoarsely vociferated the knight of the stable. 

"Something stronger than eoftVe, sir. you've been drinking! Don't look at 
me like that, sir!" furiously. "Look at the jury, sir! Did you have something 
in your coffee, sir?" 

"Yes, sir." 

"What was it?" 

"Sugar." 

"This man is no fool, my lord — he is worse!" stormed the counsel. 

"Now, sir" — turning to the witness — 'look a1 me. What beside sugar did 
you take in your coffee this morning?" 

The hostler collected his forces, drew a deep breath, and, in a voice that could 
have been heard half a mile away, bellowed out — 

"A spune ! A spune, an' nothing else!"

Base Ball 



B. MITCHELL, Captain. 
"Bennie" hails from Sardis, Miss., where lie first attracted attention as a pitcher. He 
made the team in 1906, and lias alternated between right Held and the box. He is conceded 
to be the best lieider iii the S. I. A. A. As a pitcher he lias an enviable record, winning many 
games after they were apparently lost. We will feel his hiss next year. 

McCARGO, Manager. 
"Hack" came to us with the famous Mitchell brothers, and was one of (he main factors 
in winning the Southern A. A. Championship. On account of his speed he was shifted from 
center field tn second, where he proved to be cne oi the mosl reliable men at this position. 
He is a £oou batter and base runner. 

McLELLAN, Captain-elect, 
"Mickey," who also helped to cinch the S. I. A. A. Championship, is. according to eminent 
critics, the best college backstop in the South. Ee is a good hitter, and can play any position 
on the infield. Ee was unanimously elected Captain and Manager for the linn team. Mike 
has his fun. win or lose. 

LENOIR. 
"Paine" made the team in 1906, ami has alternated between short and second ever since. 
He is exceptionally fast and the hardesl hitter on the team, getting three-baggers and home 
runs in the majority of the names. Several times he has been known to slid into home plate 
while the pitcher was winding up. 

HEARN. 
'"Bun." who was one of the best football players in college, is a batter of no small ability. 
He hits from the left side and usually puts them oxer the fence. One of the best pitchers in 
the South. Plenty of speed and uses good bead work. 

W. MITCHELL. 

"Willie" is easily the best college pitcher in 1 he South. This fact is attested by the fact 
that he made good with the Cleveland Americans. Broke the world's record by striking out 
twenty-one men in a league game. He has established a college record for strikeouts which 
no pile her will soon equal. We will mourn bis loss next year. 

WHITTEN. 

"Bill" is the life of the team, lie was the best third baseman in the S. I. A. A. One of the 
best batters and base runners on the team. He is easily of professional caliber, lie will not 
be with the team next season. 

RUSSELL. 
"Rusty" is from Laurel, Miss. He is a good first baseman and a hard student of the game. 
A good pinch hitter, a good bidder and has a splendid whip. lie will be with us next year. 

SMITH. 
"Shuckins" came up from the class teams. This was bis second year on 'Varsity, lie is a 
good base runner, and a good bitter, lias an iron arm and never tires. Will be the mainstay 
of next year's pitching staff. 

CHISHOLM. 
This was bis first year on the team. His playing was the feature of many games. On< of 
the most consistent batters on the team. We regret that lie will not be with the team 
next year. 

210 



HARDY. 
Although a new man, Hardy showed up well in all games. Should lie ho with us next 
year he will make a valuable man. A daring base runner and a heady player. 

CLAY. 
"Annie"' is easily the peer of any college player in the South. Covers a let of ground and 
pegs them home in good style. A swift runner and a good batter. We hope to have him 
next season.

Base Ball Season for 1 909 

The team of 1909 was without doubt the best in (lie history of the institution. 
Further, we had the best team in the 8. I. A. A. This assertion is based upon 
facts which no just critic can overlook. We won every series with comparative 
case and played some of the fastest teams in the South. (Mir old and honored 
rival, University of Mississippi, was beaten three straight games in the prettiest 
series ever played between Southern cotleges. We were unfortunate in not 
meeting the University of Alabama, since they also claim the best team in the 
S. I. A. A. Still here are some facts upon which any just critic will give us 
the premier honors. We defeated Cumberland University three straight games, 
allowing them only four hits and no runs in the series. From here Cumberland 
went to Tuscaloosa and played Alabama a series. Cumberland won the first 
game and Alabama won the other two by a narrow margin. Our claim is not 
based upon this alone. The "Howard Collegian," whose team played both Ala- 
bama and A. & M., tells us this: 

"A. & M. has the strongest team that Howard has yet encountered. The 
pitching staff is superb, and I lie whole team fields together like a machine." 
Still other critics tell us about our team. Coach Moss of U. of M. says: 
"We lost because you have the best team in the South. Old Mississippi had 
a plucky outfield, but they were outbatted, outfielded and outgeneraled." 

After winning from the University of Mississippi at Greenwood, Manager 
McCargo received a telegram from the University of Nashville team, which read: 
"Congratulations on the best college team in the United States." 
From the S. P. U. "Journal" we have this: 

"Swiftest bunch we have played, and the all-round team work of A. & M. 
was the feature, of the series." 

That we had such a strong team is due in part to the splendid coaching of 
"Dolly" Stark. Still the fact that we had such material as the Mitchell 
brothers, Hearn, McLellan, Russell, Lenoir, Whitten, McCargo, Clay and others 
to work upon must not be overlooked. Individually and collectively our team 
was of championship caliber. Our pitching staff was the best in the South and 
the equal of any college staff in the United States. This is proven by the fact 
that one of our stars, Willie Mitchell, made good in the American League. 

Our prospects for the season of 1910 are good. Though most of the old men 
are not here, we have Capt. McLellan, First Baseman Russell and Pitcher Smith 
as a nucleus around which to build a new team. We have unlimited confidence 

212 



in Coaches Chadwiek and "Cap Bennie. " Behind them a good team could be 
developed from absolutely raw material. Since we have such promising material 
and with these coaches the prospects for a team fully equal to that of 1909 are 
of the best.

Basket Ball, 1 909 



The spring of 1909 saw the first intercollegiate basket-ball team at the Missis- 
sippi A. & M. Despite the fact that this was our first season, we gave a good 
account of ourselves. Dr. Werner developed a good team ami laid the foundation 
of good teams in future. Considering the late date of organization, the manager 
arranged several good series, Tulane, L. S. U., Mississippi College being played on 
a trip. Though the team lost to these schools, they gave a good account of 
themselves. A series at heme with the College of Physicians and Surgeons was 
a victory for the Maroon and White. 

The five men who represented us were fast, heady and aggressive. Garrison 
and Hardy were easily the stars of the team. Two guards better than these 
are hard to find. At center Captain Furman did good work. Hale and Simmons 
at forwards showed up well.

TRACK FOR 1909. 

We were very unfortunate this vein- in not being able to arrange any intercol- 
legiate meets. Despite this the men under Dr. Werner's efficient coaching did 
good work. All previous records except three were broken. Considerable interest 
was manifested on all sides, and we should have a team equal to any in the South 
next year. Great credit is dwo to the men for the work they did. With such men 
as shown beiow hack next season the prospects are good.

Give Me Your Glad Girl Heart 

Give me your eyes, so young', so gay; 

Give me your hands, so soft, so small ; 
Give me your lips that smile and say 

"But do you love me after all?" 
Give me the roses from your eheeks, 

Where the firefly blushes, dance and dart; 
Give me the words you fear to speak- ; 

Give me your glad girl heart. 

Take of my little what you will — 
The hooks I read, the songs I write, 

The work I do, or good or ill ; 
My scant provision of delight; 

Take and give what never can be bought, 
Your heart of virgin gold. 

Nay. I who am so poor in gifts, 

May only for your mercy cry 
As when the priestly suppliant lifts 

Tlie humblest offering on high; 
A sacrifice of doubt and dole. 

Before the. incense wreaths depart, 
My little Lady Pure of Soul, 

Give me your glad girl heart.

Faith 



He was the strongest man I knew, 
Serene and self -secure, 
Fashioned to mock at time and change, 
To suffer and endure. 

I saw him poor, unknown, despised, 

Hew out his gradual way. 
I saw him battle mighty wrongs 

As if the war were play. 

T saw him lift men up and best, 
When life went like a song 
Of pleasant things, I saw him still 
Simple, and pure, and strong. 

Ami learning of his faith, I asked 

How such a thing could be 
In one so strong, and whence it came 

And then he answered me. 

God lives, God reigns, God loves the world; 

This much I know 
With all my heart and soul, because — 

Because I loved him so.

The Young Men's Christian Association is the largest student organization in 
the world. The scope of it is contained in the words: Spirit, Mind and Body; 
in other words, the all-round developed man. The perfection of these three, 
Spirit, Mind and Body, constitutes the highest development that can be reached. 

The local Association is a part of the International Association, and is under 
the directoirn of an Advisory Board, composed of members of the Faculty. A 
cabinet selected from the student body and a general secretary, who gives his 
entire time to the work of the Association. 

The work of the Young Men's Christian Association is large and varied, and 
students and Faculty recognize the important place it is occupying in our col- 
lege life. 

The Association works upon the principle that the more a man puts into it, 
i he more he gets out of it. The Association offers opportunities for development. 
Prayer meetings are held each Tuesday and Thursday evenings. These metings 
are very helpful and there has been an average attendance of 55 at these meetings 
The regular meeting of the Association is held on Sunday evening, with an 
average attendance of 185. These meetings are led by members of the Faculty, 
students and strong outside speakers. 

The membership of the Association has reached the 400 mark during the 
past year. Four hundred and thirty men have been enrolled in Bible Study, 
with an average attendance of 320. Leaders for the 32 classes in which these 
men are enrolled are coached in normal classes by strong members of the Faculty. 

There has been a strong interest shown in all departments during the past 
year. Men are beginning to see that the religious life is the true life. May the 
day soon come when every man in college will become a loyal supporter of the 
Association. We cpiote the following from Dr. Logan : "I consider the College 
Young Men's Christian Association the most important of the student organiza- 
tions, both from the standpoint of its aims and purposes and also from its 
larger membership."

When I Dream of You 

Down a path lined with roses, 

Up hroad marble stairs, 
Through a hall where sleep reposes, 

Lulled by dreamland airs ; 
On through courts with fountains playing 

Gardens bright with dew; 
Thus it is that I go straying. 

When I dream of you. 

Oft in golden latticed bowers, 

Arbors lily-twined, 
There I find in blissful hours 

Raptures uneonfmed ; 
Angels come to look and listen 
Ever o'er me star-eyes glisten, 

There above me, too, 

When I dream of you! 



If / Were King! 

If I were king, ah love, if I were king, 
What tributaries of nations I would bring, 
To stoop before your scepter and to swear 
Allegiance to your lips and eyes and hair; 
Beneath your feet what treasures would I fling, 
The stars should be your pearls upon a string, 
The world a ruby for your linger ring, 
And you should have the sun and moon to wear, 
If I were king.

The Reclaiming of Captain Eaves 

There could be no doubting that Marshallville was in the throes of a revival. 
The customary annual protracted meetings of the various churches had never 
rolled up so high a wave of acute piety. This was a "union meeting" — all the 
organs and organizations had organized into one organic whole. The triumphs 
of salvation which sent daily thrills through the good citizens of Marshallville 
were not the minor victories of a guerilla warfare, but were instead the grandly 
sweeping conquests of an ordered army. Success had crowned every detail of 
the campaign. It had seemed, indeed, thai the Prince of the Powers of the 
Air had seen the futility of resisting and had struck his colors without firing 
a shot in return. Before he was aware of the enemy's intentions, he found 
himself confronted by the aforesaid ordered army, with its belligerent auxiliaries, 
the Woman's Home Mission Society, the Woman's Foreign Missionary Society, 
the Epworth League, the Young People's Union, the Christian Endeavor Society, 
the AYomen's Christian Temperance Union, the Sunshine Gleaners, and the 
Prayer Meeting Federation. It would be scant wonder if, under such circum- 
stances, he did deem advisable unconditional surrender. 

As has been stated, perhaps to the point of tediousness, these forces were not 
raw recruits. With Napoleonic acumen the army had been worked into effective 
form. Before the arrival of the distinguished commander-in-chief (a Second- 
Blessingite), who had waged successfully similar campaigns around the world, 
the minor officers had imparted to their respective fighting units the esprit de 
corps of the Tenth Legion. 

Around at the Baptist Church, Brother Bennett — by profession a lawyer and 
by distinction a deacon of twenty years' standing (bis enemies said of twenty 
years' lying) — had prayed his prayer, beginning, "Now is the time for the 
righteous to come to the help of the Lord against the Mighty." To be sure, 
every Thursday night for the past twenty years he had offered verbatim that 
same prayer, whose opening sentence suggests the exercises for the learner on 
the typewriter, but never bad he prayed with such fervor. It reminded his hear- 
ers of the blast blown upon the ram's horn by them of old outside the walls 
of Jericho. There was something in his tone that forbade the young scapegraces 
of assoi"ted genders on the rear seats their customary diversion of repeating 
the prayer in unison with the leader. They seem to feel that now Brother Bennett 
meant business, and they forgot his lack of originality. 

At the Methodist Church, Brother Hastings — variously entitled "circus rider," 
"exhauster," or "locus preacher," according to the individual preference of 

234 



the speaker — had delivered his celebrated prose-epic on David. Brother Hastings 
was not a regularly commissioned officer, you understand, and for this reason 
some times the privates approached open mutiny under his command. But now 
his authority went unchallenged and, with eager ears, the church militant heard 
him say of the Royal Soldier-Poet of Israel: "Brethren, David was a mighty 
hand to set out at night and view the planetory orgins. " It was an apt theme 
masterfully handled, of necessity inspiring martial ardor. 

Brother Hornbeak, brigadier-general of the Presbyterian forces, had got down 
to brass tacks (no irreverence intended here or elsewhere), and omitting his 
customary dissertation on Calvin's beliefs concerning foreordination and predes- 
tination, had likened Marshallville to Sodom and Gomorrah, whose wickedness, 
he seemed to think, equaled that of these two notorious municipalities combined. 
The Episcopal congregation — that is, to be explicit, the Tift family — had held 
aloof from enlistment for active service in the campaign, but, under the pressure 
of public oninion they had furnished some of the sinews of war. It was svnerally 
agreed that if the Hardshell Baptists would just keep their mouths shut, that 
would be as much as in reason could be expected of them. 

Marshallville certainly was ripe for such an ecclesiastical cataclysm. Against 
it the insidious Foe of Righteousness had exerted all his strategies. No wonder 
he was said to be the subtlest of all the beasts of the held. By treachery and by 
open onslaught, he had sought to gain his ends. And he had been all too success- 
ful. In Marshallville the gaming instinct had become a passion. Forty-two — ■ 
domiucs, you know, in what it said to be its most vicious form — had captured 
young and old alike. Under its baleful sway the town bad become a second Monte 
Carlo. There was no betting, but Sister Street, head of the Juvenile Temperance 
Society, had pointed out the fact that you could bet on it, so it was branded 
with the mark of Cain. Later this drastic penalty was confirmed when Mrs. 
Roberts gave a forty-two party, at which the ladies played for a copy of "Tbree 
Weeks." 

Marshallville also had a skating rink. Yes, sir ! in almost nightly orgies 
rhythm the godless young things would hold hands for hours at a time, keeping 
time with their Satan-shod feet to some such sybaritic air as "AValtz Me Around 
Again, Willie." The descent to Avernus is doubly easy when one wears roller 
skates. 

Theoretically, Marshallville was a "dry town," but Brother Foster, com- 
mander of the Methodist wing, had stumbled accidentally on a pile of empty 
beer bottles in the rear of a prominent merchant's place of business. Next 
Sunday "the damnable stuff," as Brother Foster denominated it, suffered such a 
castigation as it rarely received. 

Through the perfidy of the manager of the city auditorium, "The Millionaire 

235 



Cowboy Company" had presented a bloody bill, in which the cheapness of 
human life was glaringly taught, and in which — I dislike to say this — they had a 
ballet of ten scantily dressed and utterly reckless girls. And they do .say that 
they had to hang out the S. I\. 0. sign. The town had seemed to realize its 
wickedness, and there fell the iw!l which precedes the storm. 

Storm it was. As previously stated, a "Holiness" or "second-Blessing" 
evangelist was the commander-in-chief of the forces. And, if you will pardon 
the expression, he certainly did whoop 'em up. With him he had an expert 
choir leader who soon had in successful operation a chorus of one hundred voices, 
all rolled in white. (You understand that this is a figure of speech.) Sam 
Taylor had said irreverently, "It's better'n most circusses you see." At first 
the services were held with the Methodists, for theirs was the largest building; 
but within three days the audiences had increased so it became necessary to seek 
a larger auditorium. It would never do to continue permitting people to lie 
turned away from the door. 

Never had Marshallville seen such an array of penitents. It seemed that an 
epidemic of "getting religion" had seized the people. The "testimony meeting" 
was exceedingly popular, for here the penitents told how mean they had been. 
Perhaps it does not become me to tell of the increase of gossip subsequent to the 
revival, nor to state how, when Seth Tompkins, the town skin-Hint, testified of 
his own perversity, a fight right in meeting was narrowly averted when Clem 
Megginson, recalling a horse trade with Seth, ejaculated a hearty "amen." Seth 
Tompkins was the one who always said to a new convert. "Well, I hope ye '11 
stick. ' ' 

As hardened sinner after hardened sinner came into the fold, it seemed that 
the revival was to make .1 clean sweep of Marshallville. Practically all of the 
substantial business men had sought "higher ground." Nearly, hut not quite 
all — and here I come directly to my story. There was one citizen who had made 
no move in the matter — one who, grand, gloomy and peculiar, stood out like a 
boulder of disintegration in a sand-stone valley. That one conspicuous exception 
was Captain Eaves, the very austere owner and proprietor of Marshallville 's 
leading livery stable. Few acquainted with the Captain's ways would have the 
temerity to mention to him the question of his soul's salvation. No one was 
certain whether the captain had won his title in military service, but his face 
was so pre-eminently thai of the fighter that the title was a natural one. Brother 
Hastings — he of the eulogistic "sugar-stick" on David — had, indeed, broached 
the subject, but the reply he received was such as to obscure the facts imparted. 
He felt assured that while the Captain evinced a remarkable wealth of biblical 
phraseology, his scriptural references were so defectively arranged as seriously 
to impair their beauty. Later, when some one informed him thai before coming 

236 



to Marshallville the Captain had aided in the abrupt demise of at least two men, 
Brother Hastings felt that it might have been worse. Captain Eaves' name was 
on the Baptist Church roll, but every one felt that his spiritual welfare was in 
jeopardy. His previous record, however, coupled with the recent failure of 
Brother Hastings, made him immune to the importunities of other "personal 
workers. ' ' 

The revival had obstacles to overcome, but it surmounted them rapidly and 
with remarkable ease. The chief point of anxiety, as has been stated, was how 
to seat the people who wished to attend. If it continued necessary to turn away 
scores, interest might begin to wane. The Baptist Ladies' Aid Society undertook 
to solve the problem. They fell upon the idea of seating the warehouse, a large, 
comfortable structure, with the pews of various churches. Some one suggested 
the city auditorium, but its recent pollution by the opera company made nothing 
come of it. The warehouse would give room and to spare. As originator of 
the idea to secure its use, Mrs. Hank Tucker was appointed a committee of one to 
execute the plan. 

Now, it occurred to Mrs. Tucker that since Captain Eaves also was a member 
of her church, however refractory a member he might be, she might persuade 
him to have the benches moved free of charge. It would mean the mere use of 
a few of his teams for something like half a day. She would ask him ; he could 
do no more than refuse. The securing of the warehouse was easy, thanks to the 
generosity of its owner. 

Since Brother Hastings had called on him and had been accorded such short 
shrift, the Captain's heart had been in a constant turmoil. Not that he cared 
particularly about Brother Hastings, but, perhaps, because on the day of that 
Saint's visit the Captain had passed the revival just when the trained chorus 
was singing "Rock of Ages." Never mind what associations for Captain Eaves 
the song possessed, as he went down the street his sight was dimmed with tears. 
He recalled how the committees of "personal workers" had gone hither and 
thither, welcomed in offices and stores, but since Brother Hastings' visit, none 
had approached him. And he was genuinely sorry. Passing down the street to 
his home, he talked to himself — a way he had when he wished to think out a prob- 
lem — saying things he would have tolerated from no other source: 

"Yes, I reckon you are a good deal of a scoundrel — drinker, poker-player, and 
all-around sport. Killed two men, although I swear I don't feel so bad about 
that, considering the circumstances. Bob Jones and Bud Roquemore both needed 
killing, and they forced theirselves on you. Old man Hastings.'' (here the Cap- 
tain chuckled) "thinks you are a pretty bad sort. I'm sorter sorry you talked so 
rough to the darn old fool — he's harmless anyway. 

"And, say, did you know that you are getting old? Your last birthday was 

237 



number sixty-one. Gosh! The first thing you know you'll be meeting an old 
long-whiskered duffer with a scythe and an hour-glass, and you can't bluff him 
out with cuss-words like you did old Hastings. You are an old reprobate! Your 
name on the church roll! Ain't you a pretty church member! A long time ago 
you got good just long enough to get your name among respectable folks. You 
know you ought to have been kicked out long ago. You are the only tough nut 
this revival ain't touched, and you behaved so low-down they're skeered to talk 
to you. You ought to be durned ashamed of yourself, ami, what's more, you've 
got to turn over a new leaf. That's what you have!" 

The repentant Captain had just delivered himself of this pointed homily when 
Mrs. Tucker, coming from the opposite direction, sighted him, and with much 
trepidation prepared to tell him of the church's wish that he move the pews with 
which to seat the warehouse. Scarcely able to muster up sufficient courage, she 
came near passing him without disclosing her errand. 

"Oh, Captain Eaves," she began in a tremulous voice, "I've just been out to 
your house to see you. May I speak to you just a moment.'" 

"Certainly, madame," politely replied the Captain; no one had ever called 
him ungallant to ladies. 

"Let's step right over there to that doorway where no one will disturb us," 
said Mrs. Tucker, her self-confidence returning. 

The Captain nervously twisted his fierce looking iron-gray moustache. He was 
at a loss to conjecture what was coming. With hat off and head bowed in re- 
spectful attention, the Captain awaited the declaration of Mrs. Tucker's wishes. 

"Captain," she began, tugging incessantly at her gloves in sheer embarrass- 
ment. "I have come to you as a committee from the ladies of the church — 

She was permitted to proceed no further. With a look of acute pain, the Cap- 
tain raised a deprecating hand. 

"Pardon me, Mrs. Tucker, but don't — I beg you, don't say that! I know 
what you want to say, but I simply couldn't bear it. I know I've been — 

"Why, Captain Eaves — " 

"Please — please don't. Mrs. Tucker! Don't try to excuse me! I've been 
everything a man ought not to be. I am an old reprobate, passed deserving the 
interest of anybody. There's nothing good that can be said of me." 

The Captain paused in his impassioned self-accusation, but began again before 
the amazed Mrs. Tucker could recover herself sufficiently to make any explana- 
tion. 

"i was not always what I am now, Mrs. Tucker. As a young fellow I was 
straight enough. But I got to drinking and running with a tough lot, and then 
I didn't care for nothing. Old man Hastings — pardon me, I mean Mr. Hastings 
—came to me a few days ago to talk to me like you want to do, and I treated him 

238 



shamefully — most ungentlemanly, ma 'am, but I regret it now. Do you know, 
yesterday when I was passing the church I heard them singing 'Rock of Ages.' 
That song carries me back to — that song has associations that just break me up 
completely. I can't tell you what they are" (here the Captain furtively brushed 
away an unwelcome tear), "but they go down deep in my soul — or what would 
be a soul, if I wasn't too mean to have one. 

"But I tell you, Mrs. Tucker," the Captain continued with a gulp, as his hands 
clenched and his lips were tensely drawn, "if you good ladies are interested 
enough in me to send one of your number to talk to me about a better life, by 
the grace of God, I propose to turn over a new leaf. Yes, ma'am, turn over a 
new leaf," he repeated with decision, as the dumfounded Mrs. Tucker remained 
silent. 

At length, the lady regained her self-possession sufficiently to murmur halt- 
ingly : 

"I am so glad, Captain Eaves; I felt sure all the time that your heart was in 
the right place and that you have merely been thoughtless. I know you can be a 
power for good. And you'll come to the meetings, won't you?" 

"Yes, ma'am," said the Captain earnestly. "I shall be on hand just as often as 
I can come, and I don't know of anything to prevent my coming every lime. 
Heaven bless you for your sweet message to me." 

Half dazed, Mrs. Tucker walked down to the office of the city drayman and 
gave him the contract for moving the seats to the warehouse. 

That's about all of the story, unless you would be interested to know that now 
the Captain is a diligent choir leader and fervent Sunday school officer. But to 
this day he is ignorant of some of the facts concerning bis marvelous reclamation 
— and Brother Hastings says to let well enough alone.

The following problem in mathematics has been given some hard thought by 
members of the Senior Class, bid, up to the present, we have arrived at no 
satisfactory conclusion. We publish it for the benefit of the professors at the 
"Ranch," in the hope that their superior training wiil throw some light on the 
subject. Here it is : 

"If a- boy 10 years old gets tired hohling his baby sister, who weighs 10 pounds,

holding some other fellow's sister, who weighs 120 pounds?"

My arm about her just so, 
And kissed her many, many times, 

As though I was her beau.

For Helen is a little girl, 

In fact, just two years old.

A Western bookseller telegraphed to Chicago for Farrar's "Seekers After

Professor: "Will you explain the term, 'Heat expands; cold contracts?' 
Guy ton: "Yes, sir. In summer the days are long; in winter they are short." 



Break, break, break! on thy cold gray stones, sea! 
For I'd like you to know 
How it seems to lie so 
Broke, dead broke, as me. 



The ones who think our jokes are poor 
Would straightway change their views 

Could they compare the jokes we print 
To those that we refuse.

The Cow Pullers 

( Tune : "Goo-Goo Eyes. ' ' j 
A big rough chap from the A. & M. 

Was playing on an end. 
A little weak guy from U. of M., 

With lots of dough to spend, 
Looked hack at him from the other side. 
This A. & M. man had pulled his cows — 

W T as just a plain cadet, 
The other man had pulled all right, 

But pulled his cigarette, 
And that is why he stepped aside. 

Chorus. 
Just because he pulled those Jersey cows — 
Just because he held those heavy plows — 

Oh, he's the best there is, 

And we need him in our biz, 
Just because he pulled those Jersey cows. 

This Oxford man he was no match 

For that big farmer boy. 

His hands were made for needlework — 

His brain was just a toy; 

In other words, his team's "all in."' 
These A. & M. men have pulled their cows — 

Now, people, don't you laugh. 
They drank that milk and played football 
While Oxford held the calf. 

And that is why we're going to win. 

W. E. II.

Our clients have millions now loaned on lands that are being over-run by the 
Mexican Cotton Boll Weevil, which means the sudden giving up of the "one crop, all 
cotton" plan of cultivation and the raising of corn, hay, oats, hogs, etc. Cotton to be 
raised only as a cash crop and by methods more exacting than now in use. Some of our 
borrowers may prefer to sell rather than attempt to adjust themselves to the new con- 
ditions. If you will send us your name and address and the amount you wish to in- 
vest, we will, from time to time, advise you of any such opportunities.

Creamo Brand Feed Meal 

is a pure product of the cottonseed. 
MANUFACTURED BY 

TENNESSEE FIBRE COMPANY 

MEMPHIS, TENN. 

An analysis of 20 % protein and 5 % fats 
is guaranteed and if you compare this 
analysis with feed meal made from corn 
or with any of the mixed feeds made 
from wheat, corn or oats you will find 
that the comparison is altogether in 
favor of "Creamo" Feed Meal made 
from the cottonseed, the South's ex- 
clusive product. Creamo Feed Meal 
contains the cottonseed in the exact pro- 
portions found in nature minus the ex- 
cess of oil and lint which are too valuable 
to feed the cattle. Write the manufac- 
turers for samples and prices.
